(Did you remember we even had one of those?) We’ve waited 2 years to do this. We probably should have done it sooner. We’ve been watching it sink for 2 years. And it wasn’t great when we moved in. We had a concrete patio in the backyard. It wasn’t nice. It’s been cracked and sinking … More Patio Demo
I’m back. (more to show!) Second day. Second update. (just look at me. 🦚) So, I started these bedrooms back in October 2018. And, I *almost* finished them in October 2018. Only, I ran out of trim. I mis-cut a piece and then didn’t have enough because I literally only bought EXACTLY the inches I needed. (I’d say … More The Guest Bedrooms (both of them!)
Hi guys. 👋 It’s been a while. Again. But, I’m back for a few updates this time. Yay! First, the basement. It’s finished. (Well, almost, but it’s been this finished for a year now, sooooooo, yeah.) Anyway, it’s amazing. We love it. It started off really well. It got a little rocky there … More The Finished (finished side of the) Basement
We’ve actually been working on some miscellaneous house projects over the summer, and I thought it was about time to catch the blog up. (I’ve also been working on finishing the basement … and it’s really close … but not quite completely finished … but that’s the next update, promise?) Inside the house – Main … More We did some stuff.
And, they’re back! The same crew that built our deck for us, is not finishing our basement. And it came together fast – maybe too fast. But, it’s coming along fast too – which is good. We’re ready to be done with these big projects. And this is basically the end of them. After this, … More The Basement, Part 1
A 1-year update post on our current renovation house. I’m not sure which way to put it. Because it seems like we’ve been working on this house for a looooong time and we’re just so used to living here now. But, it’s also ONLY been 1 year since we bought this house and started renovating … More Already? … or … That’s it?
This one is exciting for me. For several reasons. (1) The bathroom is finished. Completed. And it looks great! (2) I’ve literally been working on this room, off & on, for the entire past year. Literally. (3) Now, when you walk upstairs, you don’t see this eyesore of a half-demoed room welcoming you to our … More Full Bathroom, ✓
Hi there. Guess what? It’s been 1 year since we bought this house. Yep, I know. One. Whole. Year. (+ 1 day because I waited until this morning to finish this post. 😊 ) I decided to hold off on the 1-year comparison post until after the holidays. I know, I know. It’s not exactly … More More happy little details.
So, continuing with the updates posts … here are some details we’ve checked off our list over the past few months. (Picture heavy post because the details are always the best part!) (“Past few months,” because some of this work was started and completed back in September/October … or just started back in October and … More It’s always in the details.
It’s amazing. We use it all the time. It is the best thing we’ve ever done during a renovation. It was worth all of the money to pay someone else to do it. The crew literally did everything. We didn’t do anything. They did excellent work. Have I mentioned that we LOVE it? I mean, … More The Deck.
